Exciting time ahead. I can’t wait to see more Death Stranding or better yet playing it!

Hopefully this means we'll get some substantial information soon. But they probably want to focus on Days Gone first.

how many big wig like him
left the company they got famous for
and was actually successful?

The most recent example would be Zampella. Just happened last month. I mean, Titanfall had some moderate success, but Apex is incredibly succeful already.

From the top of my head Hideki Kamiya, Shinji Mikami and Ken Levine come to mind but I don't see how this is relevant. The situation with every director will be completely different and there are a lot of unique circumstances that determine the likelyhood of a successful switch to another company.

Simply looking at Konami's fall from grace I'd say leaving the company was the best thing that Kojima could've done. The fact that he ended up securing a deal with Sony, a publisher known for giving their 1st and 2nd party devs a lot of creative freedom, is a huge bonus.

Japanese:
Hideki Kamiya left Capcom and then collaborated with Nintendo
Shinji Mikami left Capcom and then collaborated with Bethesda
Western:
Vince Zampella and Jason West left EA to create Infinity ward to make Call of Duty
Then they left Activision to create Respawn to make Titanfall and Apex

It's only fitting... As far as I know Sony has always loved Kojima and hold him in high regard to the companies success.

A big difference is he pretty much took his whole team with as well as what was said above.

welp my point is people be hype
and we barely saw the game yet

Nyxus2d ago

We've seen several lengthy trailers. And people are hyped because it's Hideo Kojima (and not only him but a lot more talent from Konami, such as Yoji Shinkawa).

I have no internal hype for the game. I am definitely looking forward to it, but we'll reserve calling something a masterpiece until it's finished.
